Do you have an innovative blockchain solution? Do you think you can be of added value to KPN's projects and customers? And do you want to partner-up with KPN? Come to our speed date event to get in contact with our blockchain experts and team!

We are at the start of the Internet of Value and Trust. KPN closely follows the developments in blockchain and is looking how to play a role in this ever-changing digital world. For KPN it is a logical step to look into this technology as we are connecting the whole of The Netherlands and control the biggest and most important networks in the country. We are able to do all of this because our customers trust us. They trust us to handle data and privacy well. Blockchain is taking it one step further; it is organizing trust between people. People have no real connection without mutual trust. This is what KPN stands for: Technology that organizes trust.

Currently, the blockchain team is focussing on several uses of this technology. Examples of these uses - that your company might have a solution for - are Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Digital Identity (such as biometric recognition and wallet ID). The team is also developing applications and implementing projects themselves of which startups with innovative solutions could be of added value as well. Potential collaboration opportunities include: adding your solution to our KPN API Store, integrating your solution with one of our new, innovative projects and getting in contact with other departments/project teams that will be of mutual benefit to you and KPN.
